KCCA, the club Hassan Wasswa has left for Vietnamese side Dong Nai FC, have distanced themselves from the Ugandan international’s move.
The Ugandan club refute reports that they sanctioned a move for cranes midfielder saying the player is still under contract with them.
The defender-cum-midfielder completed his switch from Uganda’s KCCA at the weekend and posted pictures of his unveiling on his Facebook page, Monday.
But KCCA insist they have not sanctioned the player’s move. “He (Wasswa) told us he was going for trials in Doha (Qatar) and we are surprised he ended up in Vietnam,” said club secretary David Tamale.
“As far as we know we know he is still our player because he signed a two-year contract which he is not even half way through.”
Efforts to get the player’s response were futile as he had not yet replied to our inquisitions by press time.
But he seemed unbothered by KCCA’s stance as he sarcastically laughed off a post from one of the club’s officials on Facebook that claimed he still had a contract with them.
Supersport.com could not independently verify KCCA’c claims that Wasswa had a two-year contract with them as it was reported that he had signed a “short-term” deal with them when he joined last year.
Prior to featuring for KCC FC, the midfielder was locked in a long standing transfer dispute with former club Turkish Kayseri Erciyesspor which took the intervention of world football governing body Fifa to have him registered temporarily by Fufa.
The stocky Cranes star has previously played for Ethiopia’s St George (2008-2009), South Africa’s F.C. Cape Town (2008-2009) and Turkey’s Karabükspor (2009-2010) and Altay S.K (2010-2011).
